Self-care and collaboration - Dr Jamie Barker (Part One)
Season TWO of the Slice of PIE podcast kicks off with former chair of the British Psychological Society's (BPS) Division of Sport and Exercise Psychology (DSEP) and 'Pracademic' with over 20 years of experience. That's experience in consultancy, lecturing, research, presenting and working in all manner of domains from premier league football and academy cricket to supporting the British Paralympics team in Rio, and from working in sport to business to the military and many other performance environments. Jamie is also the author of multiple books including The Psychology of Soccer: More Than Just a Game which came out this year (2020) in partnership with Joe Dixon, Richard Thelwell and Ian Mitchell (see link below).
Jamie is also one of the nicest blokes around, and kindly gave enough time to fill two episodes’ worth of insight and experience. This is 'part one' of our conversation.
